    Dear Parent,

    I hope that this letter finds you and your family healthy and safe. These days are ever changing and can be quite anxiety provoking. I want you to know that I am here for your child and will continue to be despite our physical separation.

    I will be setting up counseling appointments with your child which can be via telephone or telecounseling (video conferencing) whichever your child's preference. I do not want them to feel overwhelmed as we start this online learning experience. I will send your student an email with my availability and they can schedule their counseling session for a time that works best for them.


    Please feel free to email me anytime and I will respond as soon as possible. My email is Gloria.denardi@wcsdny.org. The best way to reach me is through this email which I check daily. My office hours are from 11:00 to 12:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. If you have significant concerns about your child, please know that there are many county resources that continue to be available, such as the MHA Dutchess County Hotline (call or text). This hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Their number is 845-485-9700 or in an emergency call 911. There is also an emotional support hotline, set up specifically to discuss anxiety around Covid-19. Please feel free to call them with any questions/concerns or just to talk. https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/covid-19-resources.html


    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Wishing you my best!

    Respectfully Yours,

    Gloria Denardi, LCSW-R
